Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

CD stuck in Dell Studio 15.

I put a blank cd into my drive to burn some music over, but the disk was not recognised and now won't eject. Is there any way to get it out easily? Someone somewhere said about inserting a needle in, but uh, I have no idea what part of the drive I should be probing about in to release the disk.

I literally got this laptop a fortnight ago, and I really don't wanna go paying to get something as simple as this removed. Anyone know how to deal with this?

CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I have a dell studio computer and cannot get the cd out of the drive. I do not see an eject button. What do I do?


Go to "My Computer"
Find the listed drive that has the stuck disk.
Right click on the drive icon.
Choose eject.
If that doesn't work then there is a tiny hole in the front of all drives that when you push in a paper clip, it will open the drive bay.
Try that and I hope this works for you.

Dell Inspiron 530 CDRW/DVD problems


Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.
